Happy Monday - and an especially happy one for me because it's officially Day 1 of Spring Break...that's TWO weeks of Spring Break! Yayyyy! Today, I'm delighted and honoured to guest design alongside the fabulous Pink Elephant team once again, with this week's The Pink Elephant Challenge #291~Inspiration Challenge.
With Spring and Easter drawing ever-so-near, the team has chosen this lovely basket of pastel-iced, sweet-cookies photo to spark your muse. What details INSPIRE you? Colours, shapes, themes...the possibilities are wide open!
Once again, I've gone just a wee bit overboard with my cards (who me? Overboard??). Of course, I 'wanted' to create cards with Easter bunnies and eggs, however, the only bunny punch I have - bought on sale post-Easter last year - doesn't work any more! I was not hoppy...er, happy...with that discovery. Perhaps it's because my nephew went to town with it last year, punching out bunnies galore. Hmmm...anyway, no bunnies. I also don't have egg stamps/dies (yes, I could have used oval dies, but I don't know where they are, which is ridiculous, given how miniscule, in general, my collection is). Hmmm...anyway, no eggs.
I adapted. Drawing inspiration from themes, shapes (you do see the butterflies, right? *grin*), and colours and here's what I came up with:
Please head over (or if you've already been, THANK YOU for coming my way) to see the creativity from
Lori (on break, but she'll be back! Promise!)
I know you'll be amazed and inspired by what they've designed! I'm looking forward to your interpretations - cards and/or projects welcome - in the gallery.
